“Green Places: A Celebration of Celtic and Irish Music”

Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. 

 

 

 

As a way of paying homage to St. Patrick’s Day (and honoring the bit of Irish in all of us!), flute and piano duo “Keys and Breeze,” consisting of Sacramento flutist Dr. Alice Lenaghan and Woodland pianist Dr. Jana Olvera, will perform a special seasonal concert featuring both traditional and contemporary Irish and Celtic music for flute and piano, solo piano, and flute and voice. The performers will present their trademark lively commentary before each piece, bringing the music to life so that both seasoned concert-goers as well as classical newcomers can enjoy and appreciate the musical experience. Woodland soprano Katie Carlson will be a featured guest artist on the program. 

 

Tickets for the performance are $20 for adults and $10 for students under 17. Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more ($18 for adults, $9 for students). Tickets can be purchased via the Woodland Opera House website (www.woodlandoperahouse.org) or by calling the box office at (530) 666-9617. 

 

Since 2005, the classical flute and piano duo “Keys and Breeze” has joyfully collaborated on a series of local concerts with a fresh, dynamic approach to live performance. The duo enjoys performing both standard and “off-the-beaten-path” repertoire, and strives to make classical concerts more audience-friendly by combining engaging verbal commentary with intriguing musical selections. In their distinctively themed performances, the performers move seamlessly from solo to ensemble repertoire, sharing information on composers and styles along with candid observations from the performers’ perspectives. 

 

An active orchestral musician, Alice Lenaghan is Principal Flute of the Oakland East Bay Symphony, and has performed Principal Flute with the Detroit, Toledo, Flint and Napa Symphonies, and Sacramento and Michigan Operas. She also frequently presents solo recitals and has appeared as a soloist with orchestras, including the Folsom Lake Symphony and center stage at the California State Fair. Dr. Lenaghan has served on the faculties of California State University-Chico, Albion College, Concordia and Oakland (MI) Universities and for many years directed the Flute Ensembles with the Sacramento Youth Symphony. She holds a doctorate in flute performance from the University of Michigan in addition to performance degrees from Western Michigan University and the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. 

 

Pianist Jana LaHood Olvera is active as a teacher and as a solo and collaborative artist. She earned degrees in piano performance and pedagogy from Bradley University and the University of Illinois and also studied piano at the graduate level at Indiana University. Dr. Olvera earned her Doctor of Musical Arts degree in piano performance from the University of Iowa, and was also an assistant professor of piano at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. In addition to local collaborative piano performances, Dr. Olvera has also presented several solo programs at the Woodland Opera House, including “Animalia,” a family-oriented solo piano recital, and “Simply Romantic,” featuring favorite 19th century repertoire. Dr. Olvera teaches intermediate and advanced level piano in Woodland and also works as a classical pianist at University Covenant Church in Davis.

 

Tickets for the performance are $20 for adults and $10 for students under the age of 17.  For groups of  10 or more $18 for adults and $9 for students. Call the box office for group rate tickets  Click here to purchase your reserved seats.
